Bike Demos


The Absolute Bikes Demo Program:

Lets face it, there is nothing more telling than getting to put fresh tires to dirt and getting a real feel for the personality of the bike you’re about to buy.  Here at Absolute Bikes, we’re dedicated to helping you find the new right new bike! We have a small selection of demo specific bikes, however new bikes can be demo'd at staff discretion with the intention of deciding on a new bike purchase. 

We’ll be ready to set you up on bikes to test-ride for a real-world experience on the amazing singletrack that we have here in Salida.

Program Details:

  • $90/test ride

  • Full setup for your test-ride including suspension setup, adjustments of contact points and proper tire pressure

  • Apply up to 2 test-ride fees to the purchase of your new bike!  (expires 15 days from initial test-ride)

  • *Bikes must be ridden and returned during business hours* (returns required an hour prior to shop close)

  • *Bikes may NOT be loaded onto a vehicle for transport*

  • *Any damages to bikes during test-ride period are the responsibility of the rider and will be charged for accordingly*


  • Q: Can I test ride more than 1 bike?

  • A: Absolutely. You can test-ride as many bikes as you'd like. Each test-ride is $90 and you can use up to 2 of those fees towards the purchase of your new bike.

  • Q: Can I take the bike out for the entire day?

  • A: We allow for test rides to be ridden during our hours of operation. We ask that test-rides be kept to a normal riding duration, and that the bikes are returned to the shop an hour prior to close (prior to 5pm)

  • Q: What if you don't have the exact bike I want to test?

  • A: Lets chat! We've got lots of great options, and we're confident that we could find something that would be comparable, and would still allow you to get the feel for what you're looking for.

  • Q: You have the bike I want, but not in the color or spec I was looking for, is there anything that can be done?

  • A: Parts kits are easy. We have lots of build kits, wheels, and suspension options in stock. Color...that one can be a little more difficult, but we can dig into options if they exist!
